SPENNYMOOR Town will host York City hoping to extend their unbeaten run of 15 home games.

The fifth-placed Moors have not tasted defeat at Brewery Field since a 2-1 defeat to Grantham on February 4 in the Evo-Stik League.

Since then, they have won nine and drawn six matches in front of their fans, including a 1-0 play-off final victory over Stourbridge.

The north-east part-timers have also scored in 26 consecutive fixtures on their own soil.

Spennymoor’s last three games have all ended 1-1, with a couple of familiar faces - ex-Minstermen Bradley Fewster and Matty Dixon - in their ranks.

Fewster may be given his first start, having made his debut as a 63rd-minute sub at the weekend.

The 21-year-old forward, who represented England from under-16 to 19 level, was released by Middlesbrough over the summer.

He scored eight goals in 24 matches for City, but could not help the club stave off the threat of relegation from the Football League.

Ever-present striker Glen Taylor has already netted five times, though, meaning the Moors have good options in attack

Dixon has been a first XI regular, but another former Bootham Crescent pro David Dowson, who made five substitute appearances under 2010 caretaker managers Andy Porter and Steve Torpey, won’t feature having joined Consett on loan.

Winger Ryan Hall is the only injury doubt as manager Jason Ainsley, who was appointed ten years ago and has won four promotions, five league titles and the FA Vase in that time, looks to build on his team’s promising start to the campaign.
